The Liberal Archipelago

A Theory of Diversity and Freedom

Chandran Kukathas

Oxford Political Theory

In his major new work Chandran Kukathas offers, for the first time, a book-length treatment of this controversial and influential theory of minority rights. The author argues that the free society should not be seen as a hierarchy of superior and subordinate authorities but an archipelago of competing and overlapping jurisdictions.
